Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Semi-Flex (SOLD)

Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Semi-Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a burgundy Skyline Standard size with a gold-filled cap. The pen is in decent condition. The main blemish on the pen is that there are tiny dings and scratches throughout the cap, though I do not see any plate loss on it. There is a tiny bit of plate loss on the middle of the lever. There is some very light scratching here and there on the body, but it is very minor and has mostly buffed out. The Eversharp 14kt. nib is a nice, smooth writing XF/F (0.35mm). It has about a medium wetness. I would say 4/10 in wetness, which seems positively dry compared to the typical gushing wetness of most Skylines. The nib does have some decent flex to it going up to 1.4mm. However, it is a bit stiffer than a “typical” Skyline flex nib and lacks the responsiveness of higher quality flex pens. Still, it has some easy to come by line variation.
